Have you ever noticed the waterfall on the Millennium Library?
It is cascading off a ledge on the side of the building and glimmers and sparkles in the sunshine. It appears to be moving and flowing. The artist who made it out of plywood, plastic and sequins is Theresa Himmer. Theresa is from Denmark but works in Reykjavik, kind of fitting since Manitoba has such a significant Icelandic population.
The artist says it “playfully investigates the relationship between artificial and natural landscapes. “
One of the things I love about Winnipeg’s downtown is all the interesting public art especially during the pandemic when art galleries are closed. You can see a video of the waterfall moving here.
